    About The Company

    How we started

    Specialized Travel Services has been in business since 1974 but unofficially it began much before that. The company is part of the Cronin Travel Group, owned & operated by the Cronin Family; in addition to STS, the Cronin Family own and operate Cronins Coaches, Dermot Cronin Motors, and Select Hotels of Ireland, a collection of independently owned hotels.

    The Cronin family travel legacy began in 1957 with Dermot Cronin’s operation of a taxi hire service in Cork City using an American Hudson. Today Cronins operates vehicles of all sizes and is one of Ireland’s largest and longest-running coach companies with many awards and recognitions. With our own fleet of over 50 vehicles, we ensure the highest standard of transportation as these are operated by our sister company Cronins Coaches.

    Our Head Office is based in Dublin and our reservations office is in Cork. In 1996, we opened a full time office in New York under the leadership of Director Derry Cronin to better work with the North American trade.

    The Company today

    The Cronin Team employs a staff of over 110 people, many who have been with the company for over 20 years. Our team are very committed to offering the very best that Ireland has to offer & dedicated to making sure all of our clients have the most memorable Emerald Isle experience. We are proud of the fact that we are very much a family run operation where individual attention is given to all our clients.

    We believe in a building a personal relationship with all our clients so that we can offer you not only our knowledge & advice, but also our 24 hour support while clients are traveling. Rest assured that from the first call to returning home, our clients’ well-being is our number one priority.

    Our Team

    In Ireland there are no strangers, only friends you have not yet met.

    This is a saying very often used when talking about Ireland and its people. And Why? Simply because it is true. Ireland is a country best known and loved for its people, so when planning a trip for your clients, make your first call to a company known for its people.

    We are aware that for many people traveling to Ireland can be a one in a lifetime experience, and we at Specialized Travel Services want to ensure that it will be an exceptional one. While in Ireland, you will have the reassurance that should you require any assistance, the Specialized family in Ireland will be happy to help.

    We look forward to extending to you a Céad Mile Fáilte, “a hundred thousand welcomes” to Ireland. Please contact me or any of my team in Dublin, Cork, or New York for assistance.
    With Warm Regards,
    Derry Cronin,
    Managing Director
